Nestled on the Maribyrnong River, with two hectares of private waterfront gardens, Rivervue retirement community takes senior living to a new level.
“Residents can be as active as they choose, whether that involves swimming, joining one of the many clubs, reading in the library, socialising in one of the communal areas or taking a leisurely walk along the river,” Jennifer says.
Rivervue’s independent living options include stylish single-storey villas and spacious apartments, many with panoramic river views. Pets are welcome.
The well-appointed Community Centre is a popular venue for residents who can gather with friends and family or with each other, while a hairdresser and beautician visit regularly.
Activities include gym groups, aqua aerobics, indoor bowls, billiards, darts, table tennis, card and board games, afternoon teas, movie and trivia nights, themed meals, communal jigsaws, craft, happy hour and group dog walking.
“Rivervue residents are largely an active group, with some current residents as young as their mid 50s, so that they can enjoy the five-star facilities,” Jennifer continues. “Everything really is on the doorstep. Highpoint Shopping Centre, cosmopolitan Essendon and Moonee Ponds and Medway Golf Club are all handy, as are trams and bus stops. Melbourne CBD is also within easy reach.
“And the private River Garden offers two-hectares for residents’ exclusive enjoyment, with walkways, lawns, ponds and seating areas for quiet contemplation looking over the Maribyrnong River.”
Award-winning developer, TIGCorp is also looking to the future with Rivervue, using its many years’ experience across the retirement industry to complement liveability with sustainability.
Double-glazing and quality insulation will help keep power bills down.
Health and safety are top priorities, with the gated community having an emergency call system. All homes have duress systems and a nurse is on-call 24/7.
Stage four is now selling, with prices starting at $519,000 for 89-square-metre apartments with two bedrooms and two bathrooms. No stamp duty is incurred.
